    This has been driving me nuts.

    Hmm...it sounds like her, but it doesn't quite match exactly. I want to think it's her, but then the voice just sounds slightly off.

    I tried looking it up, but can't find exactly who the voice is. The commercials do sound like her "style" of voice, but a little bit off. I am inclined to say it's probably not her.

    According this person, it's Sally Kellerman.

    This one sounds like it could definitely be Kate:

    But then this one doesn't sound as much like her:

    Most conjecture is that it's Sally Kellerman, which is who it sounds like in both examples.

    The first one just has a different audio quality than the second one, but sounds nothing like Kate to me. There's a sultry quality there that Kate just doesn't have.

    I think Kate has a pretty sexy voice.

    But yeah I agree I do not think that is Kate.
    I believe it is most likely Sally Kellerman.

    Sexy, I can agree with, but Sally has a sultry quality, if there's really a difference.

    There's no doubt in my mind that both of those are Sally Kellerman. Compare this Hidden Valley Ranch commercial from 1991 (and allow for the fact that she's 22 years older now).

    At 75, she still has that sexy voice.

    Yes, and dozens of movies and TV shows. Probably her best-known role was Major Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan in the original feature film M*A*S*H (1970).

    ^ I had no idea who Sally Kellerman is until you wrote that. IMO, the voice in the commercials doesn't sound like Kate Mulgrew.
